Learn everything you need to know about the Okavango Delta.

Makgadikgadi Pans National Park Slider
4 / 7

Makgadikgadi Pans National Park

There are very few desolate destinations that make it onto the radar of international adventurers. This is why the popularity of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park can be a bit of a mystery to travellers who haven’t encountered the region in person. And therein lies its true allure – a seemingly uninspiring landscape that bursts into awe-inspiring life at the slightest provocation. Learn everything you need to know about Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, here.

Selinda Reserve

The Selinda Reserve in Botswana is one of those fascinating African destinations that seem to appeal to true adventurers. The most popular wildlife hotspots vary from one year to the next - normally a variation of much-loved stopovers like the Okavango Delta and Kruger National Park in South Africa. But then you get those outlying destinations that pop up on the radar of holidaying pioneers - travellers who prefer something a little different. Folks who want to veer way off the beaten track. Learn everything you need to know about Selinda Reserve here.

Savute Region Botswana
6 / 7

Savute

Situated towards the south of Botswana's renowned Chobe National Park, Savuti is at once a wildlife hotspot and a geological mystery. The fabled Savute Channel has a history of drying up for absolutely no reason and then raging back into flood just as inexplicably. In fact, it's this mystery that gave the region its name - 'Savute' means ‘something that cannot be explained’. Learn everything you need to know about the Savute here.

Linyanti Wildlife Reserve 2
7 / 7

Linyanti Wildlife Reserve

The Linyanti region of Botswana is made up of large private concessions, which means lower visitor numbers and, in turn, a more authentic safari experience.

The best known of these concessions, the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, has three main camps set along the Linyanti River and Savuti Channel that echoes the permanent waterways of the Okavango in look and feel, yet offers a completely novel setting for adventures of all kinds. Learn more about the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, here.
